About Us

The first annual Sicamous & Shuswap Lake Wild Mushroom & Food Festival was held in beautiful Sicamous, B.C. in 2005.

Participants enjoyed identifying and picking wild mushrooms, watching evening presentations, and attending workshops.

The 12th annual Fungi Festival is September 21st-24th, 2017. 

The Fungi Festival is dedicated to Peter Steiner.  His dedication and passion for the festival carried it through 10 years of comradery, learning and fun.

We hope the festival continues to grow and thrive as a legacy to his contribution to mushrooming and the community of Sicamous.

If you are interested in joining in on the fun as a volunteer, you are certain to meet some interesting people in your community and from other places.  We can use help serving in the beer gardens, with set up, take down, clean up, food prep, presentations.  Contact Deb at debheap@hotmail.com /  403-970-0114 to find out what you can help out with.
